Painting Masterclass with Selma Makela

Friday 8 March 2019 | 10.00am till 3.00pm

Selma Makela will give a talk and presentation of her own working methods and techniques, and the themes that inform her practice.

Her paintings incorporate varied subject matter; large cosmic events, icebergs, fleeting moments, lone figures, journeys and weather to explore oblique connections to place and time.  She employs these to consider the transitory and fleeting nature of a human timescale seen against the backdrop of a larger geological timeline, and consider a multilayering history of place.

This 4 hour masterclass will explore different techniques and processes - demonstrating use of washes, colour theory and methods of overpainting in order to explore and create both depth and distance in painting.

All materials are included

Expressive Landscapes with Valerie Wartelle 1

190.00

Working with Valérie Wartelle, textile artist, you will be encouraged to explore the qualities and behaviours of wool fibres, silk threads and fabrics through the wet-felting process.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of ability from beginners to experienced felters, and only requires of you to engage your own creativity.

On day one you will first explore marks and textures through rubbings, collage and drawing. Through discerning observation, you will enhance, isolate and develop line, texture, form & colour to create a series of drawings. These will then be used as inspiration to develop experimental pieces, manipulating fibres and textiles using the layering technique.

Day two will be dedicated to creating your main felted artwork. Working from your own starting point as well as your drawings & samples from the previous day, you will develop your piece gradually applying fibres, threads and inserts in fine layers. At the end of the day, you can expect to take away with you a (mostly) finished felt artwork.
